Michelin has a well-earned reputation for making auto tires that maintain grip with the road surface, even when driving in rain or snow. So, when the company decided to also offer a line of wiper blades, they turned to Pylon, a company with over 40 years of experience designing wiper blades, to handle the manufacturing and marketing. Michelin wiper blades help you see clearly and drive safely in all weather conditions.

I installed these along with the 20" version for the passenger side of my 2002 Subaru Outback Sedan. They work great. Nice and smooth. I've had them on for about 2 weeks and they dealt great with both rain and snow.

I like the style of these wipers versus the wide beam style. There was absolutely no lift of the blades at highway speeds. I thought the installation was just a tad confusing, making me re-read the directions. The directions were decent, but the other brands I used were easier to install. I had used the Bosch brand before and will probably return to them.

The rubber material in these wipers stays flexible in all seasons and they're pretty much streak-free. Maybe a little drab looking compared to some, but if performance matters you can't go wrong here.

Good product at a reasonable price for my Hyundai Santa Fe. The wiper is susceptible to dirt though, you need to wipe the blades occasionally for a streak free wipe.

I have gone through my share of blades on various vehicles over the years. These have to be the finest blades purchased to date. The sweep is clean and consistent. No streaks. Tight to the windshield at highway speeds or crosswinds. Couldn't ask for any better.

We got this and the 17" to replace the blades on our 2007 Honda CRV about six months ago. After the winter they are still performing quite well, i.e. no streaking. In fact, I am now looking to replace the rear blade. I can't speak to how they fit on other cars, but it has worked well on ours.

These were a perfect fit for my CR-V, and I have no issues with them. Remember to purchase two different sizes, as the left and right wipers are different.
